I Stand In Magic

by Shawn Allen

I stand in magic. Do you see me?
Close your eyes and I am before you.
There, and there and there again,
where the behind meets the before
and the then and now combine.

I stand in magic. Do you hear me?
There in the silence, I am singing.
That sigh, that scream, that song again.
I am the instrument and the score;
the played and player at once.

I stand in magic. Do you feel me?
Open your heart, I am already there.
In joy and sorrow and surrender,
your dreams are safe in my hands
as my dreams are safe in yours.
